We did not stay at the lodge so I cannot comment on that, but we went here for dinner and drinks and had a great time. We had both appetizers and dinner and everyone in our group was extremely pleased with the food. The decor was excellent. It was a typical Africa thatched roof building. The room had some very nice mounts that we took the time to admire.
After dinner we bellied up to the bar. The owner and his wife were working. We had a very interesting time talking about our hunting trip and them sharing some of their experiences. Their friendship was sincere and they made us feel right at home.
It was a very memorable dinner.

It featured only a barren patch of sparse bush and a breached dam; it was unfenced, dry and dusty, with a meagre supply of water and a lonely farmhouse and stable yard, built originally in the 1920s. Since those early days, Craig and Lesley have fostered and created a dream – today, the Estate features a large dam, lush green gardens, a prolific borehole, a six-chalet lodge, conference centre and campground. As they say, from a tiny seed stems a great tree!The Estate boasts a cool, calm atmosphere, offering peace and tranquillity to all who visit – a welcome haven from the chaos of everyday life.
